Brad, good thread. I long ago gave up conventional pursuit of bikes even though we still are allowed to pursue in Maryland, usually its a young guy with lots of good potential, but is making a stupid choice in running, cause anyone can go fast in a straight line, add grandma in the sedan, the adrenalin rush of havin the cops on yer tail, and a couple curves, and that life with so much potential is gone. During the off race weekends I will usually meet up with quite a few streetriders, wow em with some race stories,(they don't know I'm slow), and try to leave em with a little wisdom, to include: get some real gear, dont run from the cops, and take it to the track. I did however pursue one beautiful yellow GSXR a couple years back, a real bad guy we knew was running a lot of drugs into the community, I was doin okay out on the highway with em, but he took a long sweeper and jumped on a back road. I could still see him as he cut in and out of traffic, getting real far ahead of me, but I knew something he didn't know, 90degree left hander ahead...stinks to be a bad guy who can't trailbrake! 8).
